NEW YORK ― On the last day of Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit, fashion designer and activist Diane von Furstenberg did not hold back when giving her opinion about Fox News pundit Tucker Carlson.
During the event’s “Designing Disruption” panel, which also featured “Black-ish” actress Tracee Ellis Ross and Teen Vogue editor Elaine Welteroth, Von Furstenberg responded to the December news clip that featured Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca defending her piece, “Donald Trump is Gaslighting America,” to Carlson.
As Duca defended writing a political op-ed for a magazine with a teenage girl audience, Carlson snapped at the time: “You should stick to thigh-high boots. You’re better at that.”
Von Furstenberg’s response?
“It’s only the vengeance of the white man with a small penis.”
Carlson’s tone-deaf comments to Duca must have struck a nerve for von Furstenberg, a certified badass whose parents survived the Holocaust, and who has spent her entire adult life as both a fashion designer and activist ― something Carlson, apparently, doesn’t think is possible.
Check out von Furstenberg’s hilarious burn in the video above.
